One of the greatest guitarists and composers in the history of Ghanaian music, Dr. K. Gyasi has passed on. MUSIGA would want to, through this condolence letter extend sympathy to his surviving family.

Arguably one of the originators of Ghanas Highlife, Dr. K. Gyasi was born into a musical family in 1929 and raised in Patasi, a suburb in the Ashanti Region.

He played guitar with the Appiah Adjekum Band and made his first recording two years later. In 1963, Dr. K. Gyasi was already a popular household name where music was concerned and even got invited by President Kwame Nkrumah to accompany him on various trips.

Dr K Gyasi formed his Noble Kings Band later on in his career and for most part of his career, him and his band were successful and produced various hits.

He also formed a theater group that toured various villages and provided various levels of entertainment to them. He is one of the musicians whose works were affected badly by the various coups that happened in Ghana some years back.

Dr K Gyasi has contributed immensely to the growth of the authentic Ghanaian Highlife tune. His loss will be felt by a lot of people in and out of the musical circles. Indeed Ghana has lost a precious gem. To the family he has left behind, MUSIGA wishes you strength and grace and
may the Good Lord be with them.
